Most teachers will use the Microsoft Teams platform for meetings so please install the application ahead of time.
In some cases, we may request a meeting on a different day online/in-person if more time is required.
- When you choose a meeting slot via calendly, the meeting will automatically be added to the teacher’s calendar and a confirmation email will be sent to you.
- You should download and install Microsoft Teams on the device you plan to use.
- Each meeting will be 8 minutes max to allow a 2-minute break between meetings
- If for any reason you are unable to attend the scheduled meeting, just find the confirmation email, scroll to the end and click cancel to open that slot up to other parents
- Any teachers that do not have a calendly link may also be contacted by email
D12 December Learner of the Month – Caring
In Kindergarten, the student who is most caring (not only in the month of December) is Basia. Basia makes sure to always help others, both during learning time and playtime. She helps others complete their work when they have trouble finishing it on their own. She cleans all her messes making sure not to add to Ms. Teresa’s workload. She tries to include everyone in her games. She creates pieces of art to decorate our classroom. It is a pleasure watching Basia take care of herself, others, and her surroundings!
This month in grade 1 we’d like to recognize Robin as the caring student of the month. Robin is very helpful in the classroom, always making sure to clean up and assist others. He is kind and caring towards his classmates. He stands up for other students and helps to explain what happened if the others need help with English. Well done, Robin!
In grade 2, Krithiga is outstandingly caring! She always looks for occasions to be helpful to teachers or her classmates. She always cleans the classroom, helps with headsets at ICT, helps her classmates with tasks that are difficult for them. She is a delightful presence in the classroom.
In third grade, Shreya is very kind and empathetic to her classmates. She is always helping those in needs and helping them without being asked, especially to new students or students who need help understanding English.
In 4th grade, Charles is a very caring student. He tries to include everyone and treat everyone fairly. He is empathetic towards others and is always willing to lend a helping hand. He greets others with a smile and an open heart. We are very proud to have him in our class. Congratulations, Charles!
We would also like to recognize Miss Teresa Szlarska for earning the most caring Employee of the Month award for November! Miss Teresa’s colleagues have voted her most caring because she consistently takes care of everyone in our building. She goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is fed and taken care of and that our rooms are clean and ready for learning. She is always willing to help, with a smile on her face. Miss Teresa is one of the most valued people in our building due to her hard work, kindness, and devotion; she is a quiet hero at D12, always looking after us all. D12 is incredibly lucky to have her, and we are happy to be able to show our appreciation. Congratulations, Miss Teresa!
